    Not really, it's good though.
    I can't think of any shows that I'd actually describe as being similar to The Wire, lol

    e: actually I guess Generation Kill is, but I'd say that's due to the gritty realism that David Simon excels at portraying

    On that note, have you seen that miniseries of his from last year, Show Me a Hero?

    Yeah David Simon stuff is pretty unique. Hes got another one coming up called Deuce starring James Franco about the 70s porno scene in NY.

    Havent watched Hero yet but boy howdy I love me some Oscar Isaac.

    Getting bit annoyed with all the reboots of old movies, trying to cash cow off their previous triumphs.
    I finally got around to watching Total Recall the remake, what a boring, bland piece of crap. It was not worthy of the Total Recall name.

    The only thing I liked about it was the wacky tunnel through the middle of the planet but otherwise, yes it was pretty boring. I'll also note however that the original has dated horribly IMHO and I can't watch it. Compared to other 80s masterpieces like Aliens and Predator for example which I always enjoy a re-watch of

    I watched The Ring 2. A horror ghost movie. And did you know The Ring, The Ring 2 was a remake from The Japanese The Ring, The Ring 2, that America did a remake from it.

    I prefer Hollywood's version of The Ring, in that it's good and the Japanese one is snoozers

    Does anyone watch Criminal Minds? I just can't do it, i keep expecting Dharma to come cartwheeling through a doorway and for "Greg" to actually crack a smile. TFW actors get typecast due to an iconic role (think the whole Friends cast bar Courtney Cox (cos she was pretty good in that ... f**k... what's the name of that sitcom, ah!; Cougar Town)).

    *Disclaimer; may or may not have had a liquid "Bidness Lunch".

    My partner watches a lot of crime procedurals - Criminal Minds etc.

    Law and Order SVU is still solid.

    I was meaning how you can't see David Schwimmer as anyone other than Ross, as Matt Le Blanc as anyone other than "You you doin'?" Joey, the dude who plays Chandler as anyone other than Chandler, you know?

    Anyway ...... i do still dig SVU. Ice-T has some of the best (stupidest) lines.

    One of our greatest living cinematographers, Roger Deakins, just shot the new Coen Bros movie on film rather than his now-preferred digital. His verdict?

    As I say, just the technical problems with film, I’m sorry, it’s over.

    Seems the issues lie in the production of stock and development of film rather than issues surrounding the use of film as a shooting format, which is a real shame. Most people would rather keep it as a 'tool in the shed' for use, but basically as soon as the studios more or less abandoned it the entire structure that had been used mostly closed down making sourcing stock and getting the film processed harder and also more expensive. At least there is still places to get it done in the US, thats not the case for a lot of places... It's the same here in NZ, and the same in a lot of countries. All our stock delivery and all film develop has to be done overseas, there isn't anywhere left locally now.

    There's nothing wrong with Japanese horror movies. I have the The Grudge in US and Japan Verison's. Japan make awesome movie.

    Celluloid eh? I hear people say this all the time and I'm sure I've clarified this before, but;

    Celluloid hasn't been used for many years given its proclivity to spontaneously combust. Modern film stock is made of polyester.

    Louis CK's new web series Horace and Pete, starring Steve Buscemi and a bevy of amazing actors, is excellent. Only 5 bucks on his website.
